    Need csv importer

    I am looking for someone who can help create a plugin to import some jobs into my site. I have other job sites and wanted to import some jobs from a csv file into my new jobroller site. I tried one plugin that I had found through wordpress site but I can't get it to work so this is why I thought I might need something customized. I have a csv file that has the job id, job title, job description, city, state, and apply link and that's what I would like to import into my new site. Can someone help for a fee?

    This plugin imports posts from CSV (Comma Separated Value) files into your WordPress blog. It can prove extremely useful when you want to import a bunch of posts from an Excel document or the like - simply export your document into a CSV file and the plugin will take care of the rest. http://wordpress.org/tags/csv-importer

    Hope this information helps you.

    Thanks for the reply. That's the one I had found and it did not work. One reason is, there is no mapping to fields abvailable. When I have a csv file with jobs, the columns show job id, job title, job description, city, state etc. but when I import this file how is the importer supposed to know which city, state or job category it supposed to match to? It requires some kind of mapping tool because every different csv file with jobs I receive have different job categories names. For example, if I receive a file with the job category "admin" but in jobroller it shows up as "administrative" we need to be able to let the system know that it should go into the "administrative" category. And also if I reive a csv file and the state shows up abreviated with CA, or NY but in the jobroller it supposed to show up as California or New York. I was not able to find any tool out there and this is why I was hoping to get something customized.

    csv importer

    Hello,

    I've got the same problem. Is there a solution to import jobs and map them to the correct fields? Preferable via an automatic workaround (cronjob)

    I hope somebody can help/advise me.
